Pinterest Alternatives for Men

Bottom Line

So which manly Pinterest alternative should you use? It depends. Each service has its own following. MANteresting is for blue-collar, rugged types. DartItUp is good for college-minded, sports-loving bracket-finishers, and Gentlemint is the image-sharer for stylish men who respect craft beer and boat shoes. Though each network tightly matches—and appeals to—the collective personality of its users, none offers a user experience as robust as their progenitor. Like a dusty construction worker, MANteresting’s interface looks shabby, and since Gentlemint doesn’t allow users to follow one another, the service mimics snobbish hipsters. If we could pick one winner, it’s DartItUp. That site’s look is fun, and despite the unpolished controls, it was simple to find new Dartboards to follow.

Plan B: Man Up on Pinterest

Huddle up, men, because here’s another option: How about we just use Pinterest? The original image-sharer has millions of users, finds your friends via Gmail or Facebook (though not Twitter) and it’s dead-easy to use. So what if 80 percent of users post images of Parisian fashions, flowery home decor and cupcakes? If we all rush in, we can take back our half of the social network. After all, there’s room for all of us.

    What is the deal with men not using Pinterest because there are a lot of women. They adopted and populated first but if you don’t care about weddings or cute pictures, don’t follow people who pin them. I don’t like weddings or republican politics. I don’t want to see it, so I follow like-minded people. I also never look at “popular” or “everything” because like life – it’s usually crap. Guys started Pinterest. Why wouldn’t guys use it? There plenty of cars and nude girls aswell as techy stuff. I search for art or artists I like, photographs or portraits I know of, places I’ve been or want to visit. When I find those pins, I look at who originally pinned it and see if they interest me. Also, when pins pop on my following page I don’t like, I unfollow that board. The point is you see what you choose. The problem with Pinterest is app is only partially formed – it crashes, is missing some basic functionality. I want something that works with private boards.

    Maybe it’s the pink curly logo? – anyway, I never minded hanging out where there’s a lot of women ‡¡‡ If I want to check in on the guys, there’s the local sports bar
